Cooler temperatures provide relief across ETX


With temperatures down nearly fifteen degrees from where there were only a few days ago, East Texans were taking advantage with outdoor activity. With temperatures only in the 80's, East Texans converged on Lake Gladewater for some outdoor fun.

"Its been a really nice day. Windy, feels great," says Gilmer resident Gabrielle Leblanc.

Many were surprised at the shift in cooler daytime highs.

"The sun was beating down, it was really hot really hot," says Damun Sheffield of Kilgore.

"We were up outside at our carport like 6:30 this morning , it felt so good. Enjoying the breeze and the water feels nice," says Ronnie and Tammy Batts of Longview.

For those who experienced the blistering 105 degrees on Friday,  this was like spring.

"Hopefully its going to last, at least for this week anyway," Sheffield says.

But they know it won't last, we still have July and August to go.

"I would love to see it like this for the rest of the summer," says Leblanc.

The lower daily high temperatures are expected to last through the week.
